Harnessing his masterful sense of melody and raw lyricism, Lil Durk leveled from a local hero in Chicago to a national rap star. Forming like Voltron with two other massively successful street stalwarts, Durk shares “Downfall,” his latest single. Featuring guest spots from Atlanta riser Lil Baby and King of Memphis Young Dolph, Durk and company pledge their devotion to their closest homies, especially those serving time to protect their day ones, as Durk delivers an emotional hook. “Downfall” is the latest single from Signed to the Streets 3, following the Future-featuring “Spin The Block,” which has over 2.3 million plays on Spotify and 3.6 million views on YouTube and “Homebody,” featuring Gunna and TK Kravitz, which has over 5 million plays on Spotify and 3 million views on YouTube. Fans can expect Signed to the Streets 3 this fall via Alamo. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
Lil Durk is having a busy 2018, marked by multiple mixtapes, a label change from Def Jam to Alamo, and a move from Chicago to Atlanta. In March, he released his first project since departing Def Jam, Just Cause Y’all Waited, an important transitional record for Durk. Praised by Pitchfork, who wrote “Lil Durk writes about Chicago the way Joan Didion once captured California,” Just Cause Y’all Waited features tracks such as the buzzing “1-773 Vulture,” a street remix to Logic’s hit single “1-800-273-8255” that reached the 9 million view mark on YouTube, and the Lil Baby-featuring lead single “How I Know,” which earned prominent placement on Spotify’s Most Necessary playlist. Featuring additional appearances from PartyNextDoor, Ty Dolla $ign, Gunna, and TK Kravitz, and with production from 808 Mafia and others, Just Cause Y’all Waited EP is a formidable appetizer for Signed to the Streets 3, due later this year. Lil Durk turned heads when he performed his hits in a prime time slot, and later joined Tee Grizzley onstage at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami (catch a few clips from this performance and from backstage in the “Remembrance” video) and recently showed off his label signees with Lil Durk Presents: Only The Family Involved Vol. 1.
